Samantha Martin knew she wanted to be an animal trainer since she was 7, and it was that continued passion as an adult that led her to the creation of The Amazing Acro-Cats.
The traveling show consists of one part circus act and one part rock show, where cats jump through hoops, balance on balls, and "The Rock-cats" take the stage playing tiny instruments. All of the "performers" belong to Martin, and many of them are rescues.
Each performance is a unique event based on the unpredictability of cats, and audience members are encouraged to wear kitty ears to get in the mood. This short documentary, shot by Brett Whitcomb and filmed at Super Happy Fun Land in Houston, Texas focuses on Samantha's unique lifestyle, and her talented troupe of kitties.
To learn more about The Amazing Acro-Cats, visit their website at circuscats.com, or follow them on Facebook to find a show near you. I've heard they're really great, and have my paws crossed for some East Coast tour dates!

Charlie, at six, is still full of energy and up for any new adventure (or product review) that comes his way. While my two cats are both strictly of the indoor variety, I've been trying out different ways to bring some fresh air and excitement into their lives, and thought that he in particular would be a good candidate for leash training.

Every time I visit an Anthropologie store, I'm pretty much ready to pack up all of my things and set up shop in one of their amazing displays. So what could make the mecca of dreamy bohemian vintage chic even cozier and more welcoming? Throw some kittens, dogs, and cupcakes into the mix, and I just may never want to leave.
